Many Covers Monday: A Discovery Of Witches

Today we're looking at the many different covers of A Discovery Of Witches by Deborah Harkness and choosing a winner! These (probably) won't be the complete collection of covers, just as many as I can find or the most interesting from around the world. 

A richly inventive novel about a centuries-old vampire, a spellbound witch, and the mysterious manuscript that draws them together.
Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell.

Love how the red in the UK cover looks like floating material!

If you combine these two covers...

(Serbian/UK) get the Serbian cover! Very pretty. Also here's more smoky material for the UK Hardback.

Neither of these covers are particularly inspiring me.

But these covers are! These are so amazing. I don't think I've ever featured a Latvian cover before.

"Il libro della vita e della morte" means "The Book of Life and Death". According to Google Translate anyway. Many of these titles have been changed.

Both are similar to the US cover, but neither live up to it.

I'm definitely getting a Dracula vibe from these two.

Which was your favourite? Let me know in the comments!

    My favorite one is the Portugues cover. I love city views and the one color palette is really pleasing to look at :). I also really like UK cover as it has the same city view. This book has on my wishlist for ages. Need to read it soon..

  2. I'm a complete sucker for smokey material-y kind of covers, so it's a toss up between the two UK editions. Haven't read this one yet, but I've heard that it's really good :)
